Between grief and nothing (as Mr. Rooney said) I'll take grief. It's better to be on the W side of an ugly game. But I have to tell you this--Bama is in for a LONG year. There are too many teams on the schedule that are good to play like we're playing. All of the things that have concerned me since the hiring of Mike Shula are on full display. Poor play calling, poor game preparation, a serious lack of intensity and focus, too many turnovers...he may be a chip off the old block, but he's way short of his dad. And he doesn't show any signs of improving as a game, either during games (where he still all too often looks like Bambi in the headlights on the sidelines) or in getting the guys ready to play. Mark me down as not being sold.
